Injuries contnue to mount for Terriers

8th March 2019, 10:20 by Craig Smithson

Huddersfield are set to be without Jonathan Hogg, Demeaco Duhaney, Isaac Mbenza and Adama Diakhaby for Bournemouth's visit on Saturday.

Midfielder, Hogg, has been ruled out due to a rib injury, defender Duhaney is still sidelined with a hip problem, while Mbenza and Diakhaby are absent with ongoing calf and hamstring issues.

Striker Laurent Depoitre is also a big doubt because of a foot injury, while Tommy Smith serves the final game of his three-match suspension.

Huddersfield boss Jan Siewert told his pre-match press conference: "I think we're short on numbers at the moment, that's why I've had to write it down.

"Hoggy still has problems with his ribs, so isn't good at all unfortunately and Demeaco has a problem with his hip, so is not able to play.

"Also Laurent has a problem with his foot at the moment and I'm not quite sure if it's possible for him at the weekend.

"And don't forget Adama (Diakhaby) and Isaac (Mbenza) are still injured, so as I said we're short and of course Tommy (Smith) is still suspended."

Juninho Bacuna, who has filled in at right-back in place of Smith and Duhaney, could revert back to mifield in place of Hogg.
